Yuriel smiled, gracefully accepting the nomination. “I promise you,” she said in a clear voice, “the Ring has no power to corrupt me now. I will see it destroyed no matter the cost. This I swear.” She meant it. After seeing her husband go mad from the Ring, and after what she’d had to do to stop him... Revenge was worth the cost at any price. She glanced over at Gwendolyn, who was staring intensely at whatever was in her hands - some kind of tool, but she wasn’t certain what. The girl seemed strange, but Yuriel hadn’t seen true madness in her eyes. Not yet, at least. But she would be watching. Elrond smiles at her. “You are excused from the Council if you wish,” he said. “I know you have many preparations to make.” She rose to her feet and bowed. “I will take my leave, then.

I’m sorry to trouble you, but...” “It is an important matter,” Elrond replied. “It will be done.” She hadn’t left Imladris in... Yuriel had lost track of the centuries. Not since her husband died, at least, and that was long ago indeed. She looked askance at the trees surrounding them, grown wild and strange. She wasn’t used to seeing wilderness completely untouched by friendly hands, left to its own devices. Even from what she remembered, the world had seemed... more ordered, then. Now it was wild and dark. She lay in her bedroll, staring up at the stars and listening to the breath of her sleeping companions. Elbereth, watch over me, she prayed to the glimmers of light above. Keep our journey safe and our hearts free from corruption or despair. The stars gave no response, but she hadn’t expected them to. Yuriel knew Elbereth had heard, regardless. She could only hope it would be enough. Amanuensis was one of the Free People of Arda! Cycle 4 has begun. It will end in 47 hours.
